Build your SaaS start-up with Outseta

SaaS has been a big deal for 15+ years now—if you think about it objectively, it’s bizarre that in all this time no one has built a product that offers all the table stakes functions required to launch a SaaS product.

If go-to-market and speed is key to winning for SaaS companies, then @outseta is such an unfair advantage. Holy shit this is amazing.

Q for SaaS founders: what portion of your app do you wish, in hindsight, that you (or your team) hadn’t built from scratch yourself?

I'm honestly surprised an off the shelf framework for SaaS companies doesn't exist yet. Users, permissions, notifications/email, internal dashboards, recurring billing, etc. are pretty universal.

Turns out it didn’t exist, so we built it ourselves

You know—the scaffolding that all SaaS products require. And then there’s the tools required to support the full customer lifecycle—CRM, email, help desk, and reporting tools. All SaaS companies require these tools!

Outseta is the only technology agnostic tech stack that integrates with any development framework so you can launch fast, serve the entire customer lifecycle, and get back to what matters most… building your core product.

Don’t take our word for it—here’s some of the best known founders in tech advocating for a product like Outseta.

I'm skeptical. Outseta can't possibly do all of this well... right?

We get it! If we were in your shoes, we’d have the same concern.


  • We’ve been quietly building this product for over 5 years now. Our name might be new to you, but Outseta is years in the making. We’re in this for the long haul.
  • Check out our origin story—we’ve built large scale, mission critical SaaS products before. This included building what was essentially an early version of Outseta at Buildium, which we used to bootstrap the company to $7M in ARR.
  • Yes, we don’t offer feature-for-feature parity with many of the point solutions we compete against. Mailchimp offers hundreds of email templates for you to choose from—but how many are you going to actually use? 
  • Start-ups have more basic needs than bigger companies. The features we’re missing tend to be either integrations with other tools (not as relevant given what we offer, although Outseta is very extensible) or features that help companies go significantly up-market (and aren’t relevant to an early stage start-up).
  • Our billing and authentication tools are particularly robust—we’ve invested the most effort here over the last 5 years because these features ultimately power your SaaS product.
